Following our release earlier this week about the LFC ticket price rises (here) and the action being led at the match tomorrow by the Spion Kop 1906 group (#WalkOutOn77
), that we are supporting, we recognise that there is a groundswell of support for action to make FSG reconsider their pricing structures for the forthcoming season.
Many supporters outside of the match going fans want to help and we have regretfully taken the view that our negotiation with FSG has failed and they have ignored the real issues about accessibility and affordability.
With that in mind we want the Club sponsors to know what is going on, to let them know that their association with owners who do not value their supporters (or are we customers now?) may not be as positive as they perceive.
Our campaign will target each LFC sponsor in turn – asking them to tell us, the supporters, if they think what is happening is fair and asking them to confirm they are happy with being associated with owners that treat supporters in this way.
Sponsors will be asked to tell the owners to go back and think again and if not we will be asking supporters to see those sponsors not prepared to support us as not with us and therefore not worthy of our support.
The first sponsor to be approached will commence tomorrow morning at 11.00am – we will be giving details of what we plan and how supporters can get involved tomorrow.
The aim is to get everyone involved inside the ground on the 77th minute and outside the ground in anyway they can.
Please give this your support and get behind it, we have already seen what we can do together rather than individually.
We would welcome any support or other ideas you may have.
